Hill holder

Is there any way to remove the hill holder from a 500 without getting the warning message, the wife's car has had so many plungers fitted its getting stupid.

When I had my earlier cars it wasn't standard with ABS, you needed to add ESC to get the hill holder feature. However, since then, my last two cars have had ESC as standard and I am not really up to speed on what is now a standard fitting on the 500.

I was told when I got my 500 that it came with the traction control not the abs

Re: Hill holder

i currently still have a 500 on order, does the hill holder come with all new models released? I assumed that the 500 didnt offer this option.

is it that thing where you dont roll down the hill even though the hand brakes off or something? I currently own a classic mini and a heater is regarded as a "luxury", so i apologise for my lack of knowledge :P

I don't know about right now but when I ordered mine, in November '12, it came with the traction control as an option (which was standard on the 'C' model).

Re: Hill holder

He meant that it's built into the abs in the car, disable the abs = disabling hill holder
Thanks scout thanked for this post

Every day is a learning day , not sure if I'd want to disable the abs just to turn the hill holder off especially when it doesn't interfere with the way I drive anyway
